Textile chemicals specialist Archroma has become a partner of The BHive to help foster chemical compliance and management across the textile supply chain.

The BHive is an innovative digital chemical management platform that provides at-a-glance information about chemical products to its users. It was developed by GoBlu International Ltd to allow manufacturing facilities to easily create digital inventories of the chemical products used onsite using a smartphone.

Users can identify in a matter of seconds which products meet sustainability requirements of their brand and retail customers, who they can share this information with as well. This enables brands and retailers to achieve full transparency about chemical use in their global supply chain. Over 30 international fashion brands and 500 factories have partnered with The BHive to drive sustainable chemistry in the textile and fashion industry.

More than 2,000 Archroma chemical products and dyes are now included in The BHive database. 

"With the pandemic crisis, textile manufacturers are experiencing numerous logistic bottlenecks and challenges. With The BHive, our partners have now an additional access path to the information about chemical usage and compliance for the Archroma products they keep at their facilities," says Paul Cowell, head of Archroma's Competence Centers for brand and performance textile specialties. 

Last month, Archroma announced it has entered into a strategic partnership with technology innovator CleanKore aimed at advancing sustainable dyeing processes throughout the denim supply chain.
